Learning Outcomes(LO’s)
SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATIONS The learner will be able to act confidently on curiosity about natural phenomena and to investigate relationships and solve problems in scientific, technological and environmental contexts.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.1 Plans – uses materials selected by the group in order to communicate the group’s plan;1.2 Does – participates constructively in the activity with understanding of its purpose.
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLSThe learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsiblyusing appropriate information and communication technologies.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.1: Investigates – finds out about the historical context when given a problem, need or opportunity related to structures, processing, or systems and control;1.2: Investigates – finds out why given existing products related to a problem, need or opportunity are suitable for their purpose;1.3: Designs – suggests different possible solutions, chooses one, and uses freehand sketches to represent it;1.4 Makes – expresses how products are going to be made and what will be used to make them;1.5 Makes – makes products safely by joining or combining a range of different materials1.6 Evaluate – identifies strengths and weaknesses about own products and the products of others.


  • Let the learner choose an occupation (e.g. by drawing a card from a container). He/she must then do some research on that occupation or speak to someone so that he/she can do oral about it in class.
  • Tell the class why you would like to become a Entrepreneur.
